Meditation
IMPENITENT My Friends, will you perceive, that the lack of penitence is a most awful crime; it comprehends every aggravation of iniquity. The impenitent man is going on, adding sin to sin; and this it the link that binds him to an unconverted and sinful state. It is of great importance that I present this matter, because the latter part of this subject is to state to you the punishment, THE CONCEQUECES THAT WILL FOLLOW UPON THE IMPENITENT. And, as they are very terrible, it should be manifest that the sin it will bring them is equally great. Now turn your attention first to the time when the punishment will be inflicted. And before we proceed, let me entreat you`, my dear hearers, to ask yourselves the question, Have I yet been brought by the Spirits teaching and grace to true penitence, or am I still impenitent? Is not my heart hardened, insensible to abiding impressions on religious subjects? If so, I am the very person whose punishment the preacher is about to describe. Just so: you are the man---you, whoever you are, who are still destitute of repentance towards God, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. This time the punishment will be inflicted. It is very true that the moment we die we enter heaven or hell. I am not quite sure that mankind considers this as frequently as they ought: they stop at the article of death. Death is the most awful catastrophe that can happen to us in this world; but the most awful event that can happen to us in this world is as nothing compared with what is to follow. We are all just as near to heaven or hell as we are to death: if this night we die, we sink to the torments of lost souls, or rise to the felicities of redeemed ones. But neither the happiness nor the punishment of the wicked is complete at death. At the morning of the resurrection the body is to be re-associated with the spirit; and then the whole man is to enter his endless career of torment or bliss. Observe how it is spoken of: The day of wrath. The day of judgment will be to the wicked nothing but a day of wrath; all they see, all they hear, all they feel, all they anticipate, will be unmixed wrath. It well be to them as the deluge was to the impenitent and unbelieving in the time of Noah. They saw the fountains of the great deep breaking up, and the windows of heaven thrown open; they heard the strange uproar and felt themselves in the midst of the wild confusion of a dissolving world, as it must have appeared to them; and in everything around them. in all they saw and heard, they beheld nothing but awful justice, fearful and indescribable vengeance. So will it be with the wicked, the impenitent, in the day of judgment. It will be a day of wrath. Romans 2:5. J. A. James Thank you so much for coming to worship God with us today. We hope and pray that you will be blessed among us and that you also will be a blessing to us. If you have any prayer needs or if you'd like to know more about our church, one of our pastors or elders would be very happy to speak with you.

Word & Deed Monthly update - As we close the year 2013 we have much to be thankful for.
